A World History Sub-Unit: Teaching about Turkey.
Lynn, Karen
This document is a sub-unit teaching plan for world history teachers who want to use multicultural concepts in the world history curriculum. The objective explored includes a student response to the Turkish question of "Who are we"? Teacher preparation involves defining social and cultural roots and outlining periods of Turkish history. Through group or independent research, students select a focused study (Cappadocia, The Seljuka, The Ottomans, Suleyman the Magnificent, Topkapi Palace and Dolmabahce Palace, Turkish Arts, or Contemporary Turkey). The teacher guides the students by offering names, dates, places, and cultural groups as found in this unit, for each focused study, instructing the students to identify why they chose the particular focused study. Students keep a log or process journal describing their efforts and thoughts. Presentation of the findings can be oral or written. Upon completion of all the findings, students complete the final evaluation question, incorporating information shared as well as personal observation/determination. (Author/LBG)
